Milk and Cookies

Yesterday I posted a picture of the Cookie Monster cookies I made for my niece’s 2nd birthday party. The theme of the party was actually “milk and cookies” and so I also made favors for the adults who came to her party. Taking inspiration from the adorable invitations that were sent out, I made the #2 look like a chocolate chip cookie inside baby pink circles. It was the first cookie I made with two cookies (circle and milk bottle) blended together and I have to say it came out pretty good. These cookies were HUGE and took some time to make but they were absolutely adorable. Adorable for my adorable niece’s birthday :)

Happy Birthday sweetie girl.

Auntie Kendra loves you so much!!

 

It’s All In The Icing

We’ve all baked cookies. I’ve been baking cookies since I was a little girl.  Snickerdoodles, chocolate chip, oatmeal, and of course the most deceptive of them all…the sugar cookie. “Deceptive” you ask? Yes. The sugar cookie. It seems so plain, so easy, so transparent… so transformable. Oh yes, the sugar cookie can be molded into anything the creativity of the mind can imagine.

But what makes the sugar cookie a step above the others…icing. It’s aaalllllll in the icing. And the key to a really good, no GREAT, icing? Consistency. Always start with a thick thick thick icing and water it down to the right consistency for what you are piping. Check out some pictures of my thick icing…my whisk wouldn’t move if I left it in the bowl standing straight up. It’s a product of 10 minutes of whipping!
